Unless you’re overweight or obese and trying to lose weight, if you’re a runner you should consume enough calories to maintain your current body weight. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that active adult women require about 2,000 to 2,400 calories per day and active adult men require about 2,400 to 3,000 calories per day to maintain their current body weight. Long-distance and marathon runners will likely require more calories to maintain an energy balance than the U.S. Department of Agriculture calorie recommendations depending on how many calories they burn during their workouts. The American Dietetic Association reports that for women athletes, consuming less than 1,800 to 2,000 calories per day may result in a negative energy balance, weight loss, malnutrition or other health problems.
I didn’t tell you guys, tonight we had an earthquake. 3rd in this yr! And to think before 2012 I’ve never had experienced an earthquake. Everything is ok. apparently it was a bit strong and people were a bit worried cause the building really shook. I just woke up and went back to sleep, lol.
When I say "I don't drink" or "I don't eat this" and people ask "why?"
…I answer “because is not healthy”
and they never seem to accept this answer. Sorry, I can’t see how there would be a better reason to guide my habits! I just can’t. There isn’t.
If you say “I don’t like it” people are less likely to argue. But making a choice to be healthier seems to drive people crazy… they start “only this one time…”… THIS PISSES ME OFF.
I feel like the world is junior high… you know, it’s uncool to study and do your homework. It’s uncool to not stay till the end of a party, it’s not cool to order only water, it’s not cool to say no to junk food. Seriously? Are we that childish? I’m getting to the second half of my twenties having to deal with this?
Doesn’t believe she is worth it. Kayla, in a world filled with billions of amazing people, please don’t base your worth off of the small number of beings surrounding you. I cannot say when and I cannot say how, but I know for a fact that someday, you will receive the real…
Simply great. Even having to run it at a slow pace, I feel amazing now. Just amazing.
(So I’ll get a little emotional here)
It’s a “look at me now” not to the people who didn’t think I could do it, but to the ones that hopped I didn’t. To all the fake friends that don’t want me to succeed. To all ex boyfriends who were scared that I was too good for them, that wanted me to be less independent, that wanted me to follow, when I only lead. To all the people that wanted me to take it, be more “normal”. Well, I’m not normal, I’m a runner and I’ll be a marathoner. If you want run by my side, there’s plenty of space, you’ll have to be strong to be with me, cause I’ll never follow, I’ll never tone it down.
To all the people that called me skinny or delicate not as a compliment. I don’t wanna a picture perfect body. We’ll all gonna grow old, what I want is a body that represents what I have inside and that is strong, resilient. I want to be that person in the starting line that make the others feel challenged.
